"Frankly, my dear...."

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Marlon Brando was a contender in the American Film Institute's list of best quotes from U.S. movies. But No. 1 was Rhett Butler's parting shot to Scarlett O'Hara: "Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn."

Clark Gable's line to Vivien Leigh in 1939's "Gone With the Wind" led the AFI's list, announced in the organization's annual top-100 special that aired on CBS Tuesday.


A fun list, bringing back ,memories.

The one I thought was way over-rated was #47

"Shane! Shane!" A not-so-memorable line from a not-that-great film, IMCO. Two Mae West lines could easily replace it: "Goodness had nothing to do with it, dearie!" or "Is that a gun in your pocket, or are you just glad to see me?" (Might have been too risque...)

Here's a trivia question -- only one line (or if you prefer, film) in the list was X-rated. What was it?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
